  • I lost my dad 16 years ago today.  At that time, I had just graduated from college and I was trying to figure out my path.  I remember my dad being extremely proud of me, which felt strange considering I didn’t feel all that successful.  Sure, I was managing a cognitive neuroscience lab at an Ivy League school, but that didn’t mean much to me, because I didn’t want to become a scientist, or a doctor.  I wanted to be an actor and a professional wrestler.  The only reason I even took the LSAT was to impress my dad.  However, my dad died just days before I received my acceptance to Harvard Law School.  He never saw that.  He never saw me graduate law school and get a job at a top Chicago law firm.  He never saw me on tv shows.  He never saw me become a WWE Superstar.  He never got to see me wrestle live at Allstate Arena in Chicago, which was the very same arena he used to take me to see WWF live events.  He never saw me become an actor.  He never got to experience seeing me on a movie screen at the very same theater he used to take me to see movies at.  He never saw me become a father.  He never got to see how I raise my son and teach him all the lessons my dad taught me.  In fact, I was explaining this very thing to my son, when I came to a realization.  My dad died before he could see all of the things I accomplished that made me feel successful, and yet he was already incredibly proud of me, WITHOUT seeing those things.  He was proud of me, because I was his son.  He didn’t need any other sources of validation.  I only understood this very point as I was explaining this to my son, because I feel exactly the same way about him.  I miss you Dad. 🙏🏽

So take a look at this! You all did 27 million with only 2,442 screens while Dragon did 30 million on almost double the screens, 4,286. I wonder what would happen if we ever had a level and even playing field. But even with that I’m still grateful!!! All these years and you’re still coming, still supporting, still being a blessing to me and my studio. I can’t even begin to find the words to express my gratitude, so for now I’ll just start with A HUGE THANK YOU!
